Vantastival Invades 2UIBestow [part 3]

Vantastival is a three-day family-friendly festival held at Dunany Estate in mid-Louth over the May bank holiday weekend, April 30 - May 2, 2010.

A full schedule of live music and entertainment on three stages with further attractions for campervan and scooter owners - trade stalls, competitions, and workshops will provide the perfect occasion for admirers to exchange ideas and share their passion for the lifestyle and vehicles.

This week on the blog I'm going to bring to your attention some of the many excellent new bands playing the weekend. Today I shine a torch on The Whatmans and The Ambience Affair!

The Whatmans - Saturday 11.45 [b4 noon] Second Stage

Navan band The Whatmans released a really good debut single 'Devil Shoes' last year. They've been busy gigging all over Ireland playing their style of goodtime alternative rock!

The Ambience Affair - Sunday 21.20 Second Stage

There's not many Irish bands who can say they've had their music featured in CSI New York but The Ambience Affair will always have that on their CV! Their style of Indie Rock is excellent and I'm really looking forward to their first long play album!
